Fiona Maye has built a fine reputation for herself as a leading judge, upholding the Children Act of 1989 as she presides over family cases in England's High Court: the secular vs. traditional Haredi education of two young daughters of estranged parents, the separation of Siamese twins in which only one has a chance to survive. Fiona's newest case requires her to decide the fate of Adam Henry, a seventeen-year-old Jehovah's Witness with leukemia who is refusing the blood transfusion that will save his life. The decision she hands down for young Adam has an unexpected effect on both of them, especially in light of her 35-year-old marriage, which is coming apart.
